YSA CONFERENCE   April 12-13, 2013

 April 12-13 was a hugh YSA Conference.  Not necessary hugh in numbers in respect to some locations, but hugh in the fact that most of those participating drove between 2-9 hours just to be with some LDS young adults.  Final count was about 65-70.  They came from North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Canada.  The schedule was changed because of the the snow storm approaching Sat night-Sun with the travel involved. Friday evening after dinner was Salsa Dancing with an instructor who did a fabulous job.  There were about 25-30 couples in a large circle.  He would give them some instructions, practice and then have them rotate partners.  Saturday morning was a breakfast, a devotional, work shops, lunch, a service project at two nursing homes, devotional and testimoy meeting, afternoon dance, dinner and more dancing.  Some did leave that would travel the longer distances.  Others stayed and made more plans for the evening.  They just didn't want the evening to end.  So we felt like it was a great success.  Brother Beck, the YSA High councilman did a wonderful job in making this a great success.  We were there to support him, the YSA and oversee the meal preparations.  So fun to be with the Young Adults.  Some have challenges in their lives and the church is such a strength for them and often their family.
